Although we intend to provide accurate and timely information on the Site, the Site may not always be entirely accurate, complete or current and may also include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors.

In an effort to continue to provide you with as complete and accurate information as possible, information may, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, be changed or updated from time to time without notice to you, including without limitation information regarding our policies, products and services.

Security and Access Policies
The internet is not a secure medium. We will use commercially reasonable efforts consistent with industry standards to the extent practicable and in accordance with applicable laws to protect the security of the Site and other systems utilised to provide the services, including but not limited to using up-to-date anti-virus, security and firewall technology commonly used in the industry. You agree that you shall not take any actions that negatively affect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our systems and information assets.

We may hold information in either electronic or hard copy form or retain third parties to hold that information on our behalf.

All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of your information, are obliged to respect and keep safe the confidentiality of your information.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we take commercially practical steps to protect your information, we cannot and do not accept responsibility for any authorised access, unlawful interceptions or loss of information transmitted to or from the Site, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive such information.

If you become aware that Harmful Code (as defined herein) has infected the Site, then you shall notify us as soon as reasonably practicable, so that we may take actions as necessary to mitigate any potential adverse effects and undertake any further steps that may be applicable or required by applicable laws. For the purpose of this Clause 9.1.5, “Harmful Code” means computer instructions whose primary purpose or effect is to disrupt, damage or interfere with use of any computer or telecommunications facilities, including, without limitation, any automatic restraint, time-bomb, trap-door, virus, worm, Trojan horse or other harmful code or instrumentality that will cause a system to cease to operate or to fail to conform to its specifications. We will take commercially reasonable precautions to avoid, prevent, stop, find and eliminate the spread of any Harmful Code on the Site.

If you suspect that your Account or any of your security details have been compromised or if you become aware of any other security incident (including a cyber-security attack) affecting you and/or us (together, a “Security Breach”), you must:

  • notify us as soon as possible;
  • continue to provide accurate and up-to-date information throughout the duration of the Security Breach; and

We advise the regular use of a reputable and readily available virus screening and prevention software.
